Happy Holidays!

I was my own little sweatshop the last few weeks, making a ton of Christmas presents. Including these 8 pyjamas, for my family. (We are creating our own Von Trapp moment.)

Although not visible in this picture, the plaid lines actually match up. I'm very impressed with myself.

Another one...

Major Pattern Surgery Part 4 - and a plea for help!

The dress - it is done! I shortened the sleeves, re-did the inverted pleats, and added facings.

Here are pics...

Front - one look

Plea for help:

Dear Internet Readers - if there ever was a time to de-lurk, it is now! I implore you, tell me what you think. (And forward it on to all your friends, and make them tell me too...) For the record, my parents like it (they aren't an impartial audience though), and my brother, aka the photographer, thinks there's something wrong with it, but can't figure out what it is.

Please, please, please, comment...

1. Can I wear this dress out in public without looking like a reject from the 80's?

2. If I can, where would I wear this dress?

3. Is there anything I should change about this dress?

Be anonymous if you would prefer... I really need opinions.
